About Team White
The mission of TEAM WHITE is to teach, develop, organize, manage and offer youth players the opportunity to learn the fundamental skills of basketball while instilling life-lessons and values such as character, team work, discipline, respect and sportsmanship.
We aim to dramatically improve every player’s skill level each season. By focusing on both the physical and mental aspects of the game, we will work with every player to set achievable goals designed to increase their ability, confidence and competitive drive. The end result should be each individual player’s enhanced capacity to triumph against the highest levels of competition, both on and off the court.
Marcus White, Founder
Coach White was born in Salisbury NC. From an early age, Coach White always had a passion for sports - especially basketball and football. He achieved All-County and All-Conference in football and All-Conference in basketball. He was graduated from West Rowan High School. After high school, he played one year of Semi-Pro league in Charlotte NC. He completed 2 years at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College.
Having kids of his own, he wanted to still be involved in their development. So in 2009, with a friend of his, ROWAN HURRICANES was born. The organization grew at a fast pace. In 2019 the organization name was changed to TEAM WHITE.
Currently, he is Head Coach at North Hill’s Christian School for women’s varsity girls. And, he is Head Coach for high school girls and middle school boys for TEAM WHITE.
Coach White has worked with athletes for 13 years now. Since then he has gained a lot of insight on how to develop talent. He has seen kids he has coached move on to the collegiate level and be successful. Along the way he has hosted tournaments and still offers that opportunity today - to let kids have a chance to play the game they love.
He offers training, to develop players into next level talent.
